So far I have only had one rub made on a tree with the tubes on it. I think deer see the larger diameter of the tube and don't recognize there being a tree inside. Of course a wire cage around each tree is even more protection against deer. It's a matter of how much risk you are willing to take. If you have a couple dozen identical trees, the loss of one doesn't matter much.
Its all about the investment to me,if you've watered a young tree,sprayed for bugs/disease etc,weeded fert etc,well if a buck destroyed a tree,you can by another tree,but you cant get the years back .


Yeah, I need to put cages around my fruit trees. I have about 15 in one field with only one of each type. (Approximately 5 appl, 5 crab apple, 5 pear) If one of those gets destroyed by a buck, I lose that variety of fruit. On the other hand, all the oaks I have have many duplicates so it's not worth putting cages on them. You are right that the cost of the tree is insignificant to the time to "grow" it back to what you had before a deer breaks it off.
